Just how are White House staffers keeping President Donald Trump’s spirits up?
Referencing reports that aides are distracting Trump with positive media coverage in a bid to quell his Twitter rants, Colbert joked they were treating the president like “a 5-year-old throwing a tantrum.”
“‘Honey, calm down. Look, look, we’ve got ‘Frozen’.’” he quipped. “’We’ve got the CD for ‘Frozen.’ Let’s put that in there. Now please, let it go!’”
If positive coverage was what it took to “calm down the big angry man with the launch codes,” however, then Colbert agreed with the method. He even mocked up a fake news segment to keep the commander in chief content.
